Prerequisites

 We rank your prerequisite GPA heavily in the application process. In order to facilitate the highest GPA possible, we recommend you do the following when selecting your prerequisite courses:

  1. Use the highest course grade possible for your prerequisite selection.  You may substitute a higher-level class for the prerequisite as long as you have taken the lower level required class.  As an example: you took Physics 1 your sophomore year and earned a B.  Your junior year you took a higher-level physics that had a prerequisite requirement of Physics 1 in order to take the class and you earned an A.  You may use that higher-level physics class with the A, to match our prerequisites.

  2. Select the highest grade earned on all classes you have may have retaken

Exercise Physiology (3 credits): Must be an advanced level (300 or higher) physiology class that is beyond the A&P requirement. Preference is given for Advanced Exercise Physiology.

Psychology (6 credits): You must have two psychology classes. These classes can be a combination of different classes such as Introduction to Psychology or Developmental and/or Abnormal Psychology. We recommend abnormal and/or developmental be at least one of your two courses. Not accepted: Sports Psychology.

Anatomy & Physiology I (4 credits): Lecture and lab is required to total 4 credits. Class must include structure and function of the HUMAN body and organization/integration of systems.
